MOSCOW, January 04, /ITAR-TASS/. A member of the Federation Council upper house of the Russian parliament has demanded a probe into the state contract to purchase 170 tablet computers for the Federal Penitentiary Service /FSIN/.
Ruslan Gattarov, chairman of the house commission for information society development, sent the statement demanding an inquiry to FSIN director Col-Gen Gennady Korniyenko on Friday.
The letter, whose text is available to Itar-Tass, notes that there had been just one bidder at the auction to award the four-million-rouble contract. The price of the contract was reduced by 2 percent from the initial one. The price of one Samsung tablet exceeded 24,800 roubles.
A total of 170 tablets were purchased.
"An analysis showed that Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 /32 Gb/ or /64Gb/ was the only gadget to meet FSIN requirements. On Yandex. Market such tablets sell 5,000 roubles cheaper," Gattarov said. "More than 900,000 roubles of federal budget money had been used ineffectively."
"It should be noted that the auction documents had no substantiation of the expediency to purchase 170 tablet computers worth over four million roubles," the FC member added.
